The author examines the question of whether Geert Morrhe, a Dutch printer who worked in Paris in 1530-2, can be accounted one of the Paris scholar printers of the first half of the sixteenth century. The article begins with a discussion of what information can be gained about his editorial practice from Morrhe's letters and prefaces, and then draws parallels between Morrhe's prefaces and those of Aldus Manutius. Finally two books printed by Morrhe are examined in greater detail, changes from the text of the printed copy being described. The variants show that Morrhe tried to correct errors offending against the rules of classical Latin. In his edition of a speech by Johannes Stratius changes in the text have been made by the compositor due to a misunderstanding, while in the edition of Johannes Lichtenberger's Prognosticatio there is a change that is indicative of Morrhe's dislike of the orthodox theologians of Paris.
